“Direct Simulation on a Fipple Flute Using the Compressible Navier-Stokes Equation”,
World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology, Volume 60, 2009, pages 794–798.
Abstract: This paper presents both two and three dimensional aeroacoustic direct simulations of near fields around a fipple flute, a recorder, known as a musical instrument, by using the compressible Navier-Stokes equation following the work presented ICCFD5 in Seoul 2008. The objective is to confirm our aeroacoustic method for a larger domain than the last work and extend the dimension from two to three. A multi-directional off diagonal difference scheme is used for the computer domain of (2000x1000) points for two dimensional regular meshes, and (240x150x120) points for the three dimensional computation. In addition, a new acoustic isotropic scheme(AIS) is tested in the outer boundary conditions. As the results in the two dimensional problem showed almost the same flow pattern as that obtained in the smaller domain in the last work, and the Howe’s vortex oscillation in his theory of Flute was observed in the present problem. As extension to the large domain, they showed spherical wave patterns clearly from the mouth of the fipple flute in the two dimensional cases. For three-dimensional cases, the computation is stable, and circular patterns of the wave were observed, but the computation required weeks to reach a solution. For the AIS, several wave patterns were tested, and it was confirmed the AIS is much better than the weighted scheme, which was calibrated in the inertial sub-range for high speed flows. The computation was successful to show the main frequency and obtained a pattern similar to the fipple flute spectrum patterns.

The Development of Flutes in North America
Abstract: The Powers Phase Project, a multiyear archaeological program undertaken in southeastern Missouri by the University of Michigan in the late 1960s and early 1970s, represents a milestone in Americanist archaeology. This volume reinterprets a number of the earlier conclusions from the long-term excavations of the Turner and Snodgrass sites and enhances the usefulness of the findings for archaeologists interested in the late prehistory of the Mississippi River Valley.

“Income Inequality and Happiness”,
Psychological Science, Volume 22, Number 9, September 2011, pages 1095–1100, doi:10.1177/0956797611417262
Abstract: Using General Social Survey data from 1972 to 2008, we found that Americans were on average happier in the years with less national income inequality than in the years with more national income inequality. We further demonstrated that this inverse relation between income inequality and happiness was explained by perceived fairness and general trust. That is, Americans trusted other people less and perceived other people to be less fair in the years with more national income inequality than in the years with less national income inequality. The negative association between income inequality and happiness held for lower-income respondents, but not for higher-income respondents. Most important, we found that the negative link between income inequality and the happiness of lower-income respondents was explained not by lower household income, but by perceived unfairness and lack of trust.

“Effects of Music Therapy on Autonomic Nervous System Activity, Incidence of Heart Failure Events, and Plasma Cytokine and Catecholamine Levels in Elderly Patients with Cerebrovascular Disease and Dementia”,

Abstract: Music therapy (MT) has been used in geriatric nursing hospitals, but there has been no extensive research into whether it actually has beneficial effects on elderly patients with cerebrovascular disease (CVD) and dementia. We investigated the effects of MT on the autonomic nervous system and plasma cytokine and catecholamine levels in elderly patients with CVD and dementia, since these are related to aging and chronic geriatric disease. We also investigated the effects of MT on congestive heart failure (CHF) events.Eighty-seven patients with pre-existing CVD were enrolled in the study. We assigned patients into an MT group (n = 55) and non-MT group (n = 32). The MT group received MT at least once per week for 45 minutes over 10 times. Cardiac autonomic activity was assessed by heart rate variability (HRV). We measured plasma cytokine and catecholamine levels in both the MT group and non-MT group. We compared the incidence of CHF events between these two groups. In the MT group, rMSSD, pNN50, and HF were significantly increased by MT, whereas LF/HF was slightly decreased. In the non-MT group, there were no significant changes in any HRV parameters. Among cytokines, plasma interleukin-6 (IL-6) in the MT group was significantly lower than those in the non-MT group. Plasma adrenaline and noradrenaline levels were significantly lower in the MT group than in the non-MT group. CHF events were less frequent in the MT group than in the non-MT group (P < 0.05). These findings suggest that MT enhanced parasympathetic activities and decreased CHF by reducing plasma cytokine and catecholamine levels.

Abstract: The article presents an illustration of a reflexion on musical categorization, as applied to the Ju|’hoansi settled in North-Eastern Namibia. Their musical heritage can be divided into categories based on the identification and the opposition of musical features, which are culturally relevant. The article also deals with the relations between musical categories, social context and verbalisation as well as with the question of the invariants and the transformations within the system.

Your Brain on Flute
Abstract: The author investigates the ways in which advertisers can use silence in radio commercials to increase attention to, and subsequent retention of, information in an advertisement. It is argued here that, when music is used in an advertisement, listener attention can be focused on specific pieces of information by cutting to silence just before presenting the crucial information and by continuing the underlying silence as the information is presented. An experiment is reported in which silence effectively increases the listener retention of ad information, in comparison with the use of either background music or background silence throughout. The effect was greatest when the highlighted information was the last item of a series. However, counter to expectations, advertisements with no background music whatsoever did not induce greater overall recall than ads with background music throughout.

Abstract: The flutes and whistles of the Nez Perce Indians and their Plateau neighbors exemplify a uniform way of fabricating the "whistle-head." Comparisons indicate that the Plateau people conceived of flute construction and sound production somewhat differently from other tribal groups in North America .

Pitch-to-Frequency Calculator (3)
Abstract: The Schumann resonances (SR) are electromagnetic eigenmodes of the resonator bounded by the Earth’s surface and the lower ionosphere. The SR frequency variability has been studied for more than 4 decades. Using data from the period 1988 to 2002, S´atori et al. (2005) showed that the SR fundamental mode frequency decreased on the 11-year time scale by 0.07 – 0.2 Hz, depending on which component of the field was used for estimation and likely also on the location of the observer. A decrease by 0.30 Hz from the latest solar cycle maximum to the minimum of 2009 is found in data from Modra Observatory. This extraordinary fall of the fundamental mode frequency can be attributed to the unprecedented drop in the ionizing radiation in X-ray frequency band. Although the patterns of the daily and seasonal variations remain the same in the solar cycle minimum as in the solar cycle maximum, they are significantly shifted to lower frequencies during the minimum. Analysis of the daily frequency range suggests that the main thunderstorm regions during the north hemisphere summer are smaller in the solar cycle minimum than in the maximum.

Thirty Third Annual Symposium of the Utah Rock Art Research Association (URARA), Moab, Utah, October 11–14, 2013, 2013, pages 15–71.
Introduction: The “Flower World” is the name of a complex of verbal and visual imagery that may have been used by ancient and historical Puebloan peoples to portray their daily lives and their place in the cosmos. For fifteen years researchers have identified its characteristic elements and discussed its importance for understanding the Puebloan people. The results have been greater understanding of its possible Mayan and Aztec antecedents and recognition of its influence upon such Puebloan cultural productions as songs, ceremonies, pottery, kiva murals, and rock art.

A Brief History of the Native American Flute
Cambridge University Press Summary: This volume presents an overview of the history of the Plains Sioux as they became increasingly subject to the power of the United States in the 1800s. Many aspects of this story - the Oregon Trail, military clashes, the deaths of Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull, and the Ghost Dance - are well-known. Besides providing fresh insights into familiar events, the book offers an in-depth look at many lesser-known facets of Sioux history and culture. Drawing on theories of colonialism, the book shows how the Sioux creatively responded to the challenges of US expansion and domination, while at the same time revealing how US power increasingly limited the autonomy of Sioux communities as the century came to a close. The concluding chapters of the book offer a compelling reinterpretation of the events that led to the Wounded Knee massacre of December 29, 1890.
